The Hashtag Show has unveiled unofficial details on the production timeline, villains, and supporting heroes for Warner Bros.’ Flashpoint.
According to the outlet’s sources, the film is still tentatively scheduled to be released in 2020 and Warner Bros. is eyeing a production start date in London in the second half of 2018, potentially at Leavesden Studio. The film will reportedly have a budget of over $100 million, with Warner Bros. hoping to be in the studio as early as July.
Warner Bros. has allegedly put out an offer to Ghost in the Shell cinematographer Jess Hall to be the director of photography on Flashpoint.
Flashpoint is reported to feature the return of Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Billy Cudrup as Henry Allen. Furthermore, new characters are said to include Officer Fred Chyre, a Keystone cop who works with Allen to investigate the death of Johnny Quick, and his partner Jared Morillo.
The rogues’ gallery will reportedly include Dr. Arthur Light as the primary antagonist, with Captain Cold and Heatwave also set to make appearances in the film. Caitlin Snow is alleged to have a lead role Flashpoint, potentially meaning her alter-ego, Killer Forst, could appear in the film as well.
Spider-Man: Homecoming co-writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are set to direct Flashpoint from a script penned by King Arthur: Legend of the Sword writer Joby Harold.
Flashpoint stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Gal Gadot is set to make an appearance as Wonder Woman.
Flashpoint does not currently have an official release date.

5 Things We Want To See In ‘Flashpoint’
With DC revealing that the upcoming Flash movie will be titled Flashpoint, fans are wracking their brains trying to figure out what will happen. While the story is famous for rebooting the DC universe before the New 52 initiative, the series is chop full of awesome moments. The book is full of awesome alternate versions of characters and emotional moments that ground the universe-changing story in a deeply personal core narrative. For those who don’t know, Flashpoint follows what happens after Barry Allen travels back in time to save his mother on the night of her murder. When he returns to the present, he finds that everything he’s ever known is different and he’s even lost his powers.
It might not be the perfect story to introduce people to the larger Flash universe, but I trust Geoff Johns. Now that the plot seems to be a bit more set and the film has officially added its directors, DC might have something special on its hands. If Warner Bros. chooses to introduce an alternate version of the DC Extended Universe to the bigscreen, there’s no one I’d rather explore it with than Flash. Barry Allen is the heart and soul of the DCU, so it’s only fitting to watch him try and inject some light into a dark version of his home.
